UNLIMITED RICE PUDDING!
I just got a plug-in hybrid version of the C-max. With plugging in at home and gas used when on longer trips and when needed to run the heater in winter, I have been getting combined 49 US MPG/59 IMP MPG. Or 20.9 km/l. Plugin hybrids are a nice compromise for some of us.
Excellent bit 'o snark..
" So it pulled the People feature into a standalone app, and invited services to write to a new API. Nobody did, and so the People app became a neglected shadow of its former self.
Without really trying to, Microsoft had just snuffed out Windows Phone's "killer feature". But last October, Microsoft announced that platform-level contact integration would return to Windows via a "universal contacts database". There would be a new API and Microsoft invited developers including social media services to write to it."
It vas chust following orders!!!
I got a Garmin Vivoactive about 2 months ago for $85. The best things for me are that the GPS tracks my walks and my commutes on skateboard without the GPS eating the battery on my phone and it gamifys my stats so it encourages me to be more active. It's waterproof to 50 meters, and a battery charge lasts for a week. Without the good battery life, cheap price, and being waterproof, I would not have bought this watch.
PowerPoints are going to get worse. 3D Powerpoints are part of Windows 10 Creator Update, coming next year.
The specs on this would be great for a radiology workstation. If someone would get 510k approval for mammography, you would have a whole workstation for less than the cost of one 5MP mammo monitor. As it is, it would work great for all other modalities.
I just got the non HR version of the VivoActive and I love it. 1 week or so of battery life, customizable, water proof to like 50 meters, and it cost me $85. Not fully smart as you can't reply to texts, but I can read them, see who's calling, see the weather etc. Replaced my beloved 26 year old G-Shock (at least for a while).
Evidence of the old glazzies. Nothing up their sleeves. No magic, little Alex. A job for two, who are now of job age. The police.
My guess is that there were too many warranty returns on it. Typical things I had seen were people getting the wristband replaced under warranty at least 2-3 times. Since the wristband was integral to the functionality of the HT sensor, it couldn't be replaced by an ordinary watch wristband. Also, there were several reports of the battery dieing prematurely.
With the untimely passing of Mr Haines, has someone picked up the mantle of LOHAN?
Exactly what I did. I have a license for my machines, just in case. Otherwise, they are still all on 7.
Interesting explanation, but I don't get it. I don't use twitter for anything but an occasional bitch to a company as it seems to work better than emails or web forms that go directly to /dev/null. He acts like all gods chillin' use twitter since 2009, and that snapchat is the same. Guess I am too old since I started out with BBS s in the '80s.
A guy at work DJ's on the weekend, and was not able to play as his laptop started updating automatically. Locked it up for an hour. Had to play from his phone for the first hour.
Installed on my desktop system, couldn't get my work's vpn connection to work, so reverted. Installed on laptop, ran poorly even after tweeks so reverted. Tried again after AU came out. Still had performance issues, but they cut revert time to 10 days, which didn't leave me enough time to fiddle with it to try to get to run as well as win 7, so reverted again. The good thing is that the revert process worked great every time.
I downloaded it and was going to try it as I hadn't used opera in like 10 years or so. It said it imported my bookmarks, but they were nowhere to be found. I even tried exporting as HTML and then importing them that way. Still no joy. Sent them a note that bookmarks were borked and marked it as one star.
Never got to try the VPN out. BTW, I use Chrome on my laptop for only one thing. Watching BBC and 4 using the Hola VPN plugin. It only runs while we are watching shows, so the VPN only runs during that hour or two a night. (Laptop docking station connected to TV via displayport to hdmi cable.)
I've gotten $260 worth of Amazon $5 cards since February 2013 when I started this. I certainly don't mind the 5 minutes a day it takes. It usually takes around 3 weeks to acquire enough points for another gift card. Might be slower once they change though, since I am not on Windows 10.
Threw Windows 10 just before the expiration of the "freebee". 2012 HP Elitebook without SSD. Ran poorly and had 100% disk usage issue. Found info online that had be do a registry entry. That stopped the disk issue, but still ran poorly, so I reverted back to 7. After Anniversary Update came out, I tried again. No disk issue then, but still ran poorly. Since Microsoft shortened the time for rollbacks to 10 days with AU, I rolled back, because I didn't have time to mess with it. Probably just keep it on 7 as there were other issues, like VPN not working, and various drivers that I may or may not have been able to get working. Just not worth the hassle. At least the rollback worked great both times!
It only shows 1 for me. I guess the other tools are doing their job.
Thanks for the info. I tried 10 on my laptop just before the 29th. It ran poorly, even after a bunch of tweaks were applied, so I reverted back to 7. I just threw AU on over the weekend to see if it ran better, and it does, but still doesn't seem as responsive as 7. Maybe with a week or so of dicking around with it I could get it to run as well as 7, but now that it appears that I have 10 days or less to roll back, they are forcing my hand. I'll be rolling back tonight once I get home. I tried it on my home desktop PC a month ago, but had to roll back as it wouldn't work with my company's VPN. That machine has been imaged, and I'll need to image the laptop as well since there is no roll-back any longer. If I want to "try" it again in the future, at least I'll have a way out.
I viddied a malchick walking down the street and this made me tolchock him in the yarbles.
That's a very good point. I am a cheap bastard and my computers are all old. They may decide, at some point, to no longer run on my old CPUs. I'd be up a creek then, but with an older OS (7-8.1), that should not be a problem.
I'd be interested to know what ad watching data gets back to the advertisers from smart TV tracking. Like how many people switch channels, or hit the mute button when the ads are showing.
Smartphones are tiny PCs. They may be used differently, but they are exactly that. Why would you even say the weren't?
2 things. The truck driver was the one who caused the accident by pulling out in front of traffic. The other is that many trailers have devices to smooth airflow under the trailer that would block light underneath. Possibly their software was relying on that instead of an open undercarriage. When I checked on the trucking company, it turns out it is just one guy and a truck.
My first thought was that LIDAR, or some other active sensor type, would have not been confused like a passive camera. I would guess that Tesla will make a software change that requires more active participation by the driver. More frequent hands on wheel checks, etc.
I plan on doing this, so I can install later if I want to.
Always enjoyed his work. Hope the family is doing well. He will be missed greatly!
25 year old Casio G-Shock on 4th battery. Have a hard time selling me a watch that I need to charge all the time and can't abuse without worrying.
Thanks for the reminder reminder. Checked updates a couple of days ago and nothing. Checked today, and there it was for the umpteenth time.
I've been playing a lot of World of Warships, and that is one thing that is missing. They just added weather that affects one map's visibility, but still need to add rolling seas. Pretty hard to program without killing frame rate I'd bet.
Bummer.. I did the West-East bike trip when I got out of the USAF back in '95. Would love to do it again, but I would also love to come visit the UK, as I never had the chance when I was station in Italy.
The only place I use chrome is at work, where they have it set up for some of the intranet stuff. IE Most of the time at work, and Firefox with IE used occasionally. Nothing comes close to Firefox and how you can customize it. That may be changing soon though.
We currently use around 400-500GB a month. They aren't enforcing caps right now in our area, but if they did, I was going to switch to cheaper/slower DSL that doesn't have caps. At 1 TB, they would probably keep me as a customer.
I was excited to the point of deferring an upgrade to my PC to handle it. Through a combo of modern video cards not working with some non-UEFI BIOSes (mine), and the cost of the Rift. I ended up upgrading my i7 3770 PC to a GTX 660 card instead. Been quite happy with it, and it only cost $85 for the card, instead of the R9-390 I bought for $260 that wouldn't work in my system. Guess I'll wait a few more years.

My S3 says last kernel patch was August 2015. You would think they would want to patch older systems as well, though I guess I could try putting CM on it. I have heard there can be issues with my prepaid provider if I do that though.
Wait until they make a Lucas branded phone that runs intermittently and the backlight randomly dims.
The big ones are the height of a Saturn 5 as well. Will be quite a site to see when they launch.

"There might be a case somewhere, but it is not here."
The case is setting a precedent to order a manufacturer to breach the security it has built into its own product.
We have a peculiar situation in that a commercial company is more trusted than its government. This is a very unusual and alarming situation. The government needs to rebuild trust. In the longer term backing off here in order to contribute to that might be a wiser choice than the one it's taking."
The government can win the battle, but lose the war. Trump and Sanders are both doing well as anti-establishment candidates. Sanders not as well, as the Democrat machine is working hard to keep him out. The Republican side is so fractured they can't mount a coordinated defense against Trump.
I was going to be one of those guys buying a high end video card for an Oculus. Once I saw the pricing I changed my mind and dropped my plan. I ended up buying a used GTX660 for $80 instead. This runs anything I have tried so far at 60FPS or better at 1080P.
I had never heard the "spam javelin" euphemism before. The Reg is truly a master of phrase.
They just rolled out IE11 wither enterprise mode here, and we still have legacy stuff that won't run. The other day I was able to get something to work in Chrome that wouldn't work in IE11, but did wourk in IE 9.
I am guessing all this drone brouhaha is what is holding up permission to launch LOHAN?
I wonder how many people are going to be like that? I know I am. I moved away from an area that had a 2nd run Cinema that had great prices and great popcorn. Since then haven't been to one.
I had a GS as well. Weird car, but definitely fun. 1lt motor, and loved the suspension (when it worked right). Suspension lever forward, you had 3 inches of ground clearance. Lever back, and and it seemed like you had a foot of clearance and could go off roading. The rear hatch was pretty cool, and if I remember correctly, it seemed like the boot was huge in proportion to the car.
